Country music duo Montgomery Gentry have caught the attention of the Professional Championship Bullriders, and the two forces will team-up together for a 2012 co-headlining arena tour kicking off in January. The tour will feature 35 of the world’s best bullriders taking on the nation’s toughest, rankest bulls in the world, and when the dust settles, a Montgomery Gentry concert at each stop.
“We’re pairing some of the toughest superstars in all of professional bull riding and the rowdiest duo in all of country music,” said a Professional Championship Bullriders spokesman. “This tour will be an affordable night of entertainment for the entire family including plenty of non-stop action that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”
The first two dates will go on sale are the first two dates of the tour on January 13th and 14th, 2012 at Battle Creek, Michigan’s Kellogg Arena and the February 3rd date at Chicago’s Sears Center Arena. Ten dates have been confirmed so far, with additional dates to be announced in the New Year.
“We’ve done bull riding and rodeo shows our entire careers,” said Montgomery Gentry’s Troy Gentry. “Our audiences definitely cross over, and to be on a full-blown tour with these guys really takes it to a new level.”
“Yeah, people say we’re crazy for what we do, but it’s nothin’ like these bull riders,” added MG’s microphone-spinning Eddie Montgomery. “You’ll probably see us in the crowd every night watchin’ these guys try to ride a 2000-pound pissed off bull. Now that’s some entertainment!”
Tickets for the January 13 & 14 dates range from $35.00 to $55.00, and children ages 12 and under are $15.00. All tickets are plus applicable taxes and fees. Tickets for the February 3rd date range from $17.00 to $52.00, children 12 and under are $10 – all plus applicable taxes and fees.
